Venture Incite was founded in 2010 following the Tennessee Investment Company (TNInvestco) Act to stimulate entrepreneurial business by generating value from intellectual property.  Based in the Tennessee Valley Corridor, in Oak Ridge, TN, the firm serves as a venture capital operating company (VCOC) for a syndicate of regional investment funds.  Venture Incite creates high-growth start-ups by licensing innovations through technology transfer, then leveraging venture capital financing with government tech maturation funding to manage development risk.  Following each successful start-up, Venture Incite will plan an investment exit based on reaching an appropriate rate of return for the level of development effort, thereby returning value to the company’s public and private partners.
